By Karen Koenig
If you’re serious about ending emotional eating, The Food and Feelings Workbook is your ultimate guide.  It explains the distinct purpose of emotions, why they may make us uncomfortable, and how we developed our particular beliefs about them.  Then it takes you through the seven feelings—anxiety, guilt, shame, disappointment, helplessness, loneliness, and confusion—that commonly have troubled eaters running to the cookie jar.  Through reflective and action exercises, it takes down the barriers between you and a healthy relationship with food and the scale, and teaches you effective ways of negotiating the ups and downs of life without obsessing about food or weight and engaging in abusive eating.

French Toast for Breakfast, New Revised 2nd Edition
by Mary Anne Cohen
Check out our exclusive interview with Mary Anne Cohen by clicking here
Emotional eating is about being hungry from the heart, not from the stomach. In French Toast for Breakfast: Declaring Peace with Emotional Eating, Mary Anne Cohen illustrates how we can use food to distract, detour, or deny our inner problems. She describes how the language of food and fat is a symbolic communication in which we recruit our bodies to express what we cannot utter in words. Ms. Cohen, Director of The New York Center for Eating Disorders, believes that every person’s eating disorder is as unique as a fingerprint. She offers a wide range of healing approaches designed to be custom tailored to the individual needs of the reader. French Toast offers a path for recovery by decoding and unlocking emotional eating triggers such as loneliness, anger, shame, depression, rejection, sexuality, and grief. Her chapter “Overcoming the Fear of Success” helps identify personal roadblocks to resolving and sustaining recovery. She examines the no-diet/no deprivation approach, the addiction model, and the role of medication, and offers insightful looks at relapse and the power of psychotherapy to resolve emotional eating. French Toast for Breakfast is richly illustrated with examples and verbatim transcripts of actual group and individual therapy sessions selected from Ms. Cohen’s years as a psychotherapist. They take readers directly into the treatment room and make them part of the healing process. Readers will declare peace with emotional eating by learning to sink their teeth into life, not into their obsession with food!
